A few months ago, Nick and Jeff decided that it would be appropriate to bring back the phrase "to the max". While I appreciate many of the things that Radius has taught me (cheeve, Iowa football, Denver) I was against "to the max". Who would honestly use it? Why would it be deemed appropriate to use in a setting? Of course their energy towards it only made me push back harder. And then Beth Anne started using it, and that was just funny but it still didn't make me want to use it.
However, last night on the Oscars, right after Jennifer Gardner almost fell on international tv, she said the phrase I've been denying...to the max. Of course, everyone went crazy, I laughed so hard I started crying and now I know it's going to catch on. I can't deny it any longer (and no offense to Tsinia, but a store name does not make something appropriate to say).
So officially, I will begin to embrace "to the max". This does not mean that I will begin using it, I just won't create a petition to stop it.
By the way, I thought the Oscars were awesome last night. Great job Jon Stewart! It was you...to the max. ;o)
